  2. From PDF to Vector: The municipality of The Hague is looking for a technical solution based on, among other things, artificial intelligence, which can convert PDF files (semi) automatically into objects in an object-oriented geographical database. Do you have a user-friendly solution which the municipality is looking for? Sign up here.
  3.  3D scans for building plans: When applying for a building permit, the submitted building plans often differ from the real situation. How can 3D scans offer a solution? Do you have a solution that allows individuals and companies to make accurate internal and external 3D scans of to-be converted buildings and space(s), for example, by using a smartphone or tablet?

  5. The Duckweed Solution: Duckweed kills plants and fish. The weeds grow exponentially over the summer. How can we limit the growth of duckweeds and maybe even deploy the weeds for something useful? The municipality is looking for ways to limit and/or remove duckweed growth, and (in addition) methods to use duckweed. Do you know how we can tackle duckweed? Sign up here. 
  6. Give homeless a home: Currently, there is a housing shortage which results in homeless citizens not being able to start a future of semi-independent living. How can we support the homeless in finding a stable home? And can we create opportunities for the homeless to take an active role in the potential solution? Do you have a solution that can provide homeless people with a stable living situation/housing.

  7. Digitize data flow employees on the street: Develop new technologies to share data between the office and outdoor department of the City, and if possible, to simplify complex tasks and optimize data-related processes for employees.
